After 15 days, 1303.7 miles of driving, about 300 kWh of power, 5 nights with friend and relatives, 2 nights in hotels, and 7 nights camping, we made it back home.
Today went fine, as it’s a drive we’ve done before, although I seemed to do it a little more efficiently this time. We left Langley with 100% charge and went up the island, charged a bit at Burlington, then headed home, just stopping by a car wash on the way.
About two miles from home, a rock was tossed up from the road by another vehicle and chipped our windshield. We figured something like that might happen earlier in the trip — this was just annoying! We drove back to town later to get it fixed, and the glass place said they are thinking about getting a few LEAFs for loaner cars!
I’ll spend the next couple days culling all the data I collected along the trip and generating some EV-related statistics to share with you all this weekend, in addition to an overall summary of the trip — like what we could have done differently, etc.
I also have an exciting update about our solar panels which I’ll be posting in the near future!
